It really depends on your enthusiasm. I did not take formal lessons in cooking but I can say I am good in cooking. I have interest in it. I observe. I read recipe books. But in general, I learned cooking thru my grandma, mother, aunt and my own effort.

I have learned from my parents, and from the TV, the Internet, and some books as well. It's great to know the basics, but really, you just have to experiment because in cooking, you learn more when you experience things yourself. Just be careful not to set the kitchen on fire though :)

I think this will really depend on your interest.if you are really interested in cooking,you can learn a lot in 5 months or less.when you tend to procrastinate on learning it will take longer.as long as you want to learn to cook,you will really learn how to.it's all about the interest.

I think that it depends on what your learning, if your learning all the recipes your family members have ever made then it's going to take awhile. Also, if you don't really have enough time to learn on a regular basis then it's going to take longer, or seem that way though in reality if you only count the days you learned and not the days inbetween, you'll find you may not have taken as much time as you thought. My husband and I are just learning how to cook, and we learn something, then don't practice it, nor learn anything else for awhile. My husband's mother is teaching us, and I know that I should really learn more as my work schedule will make it where I can come home and fix supper in most cases before my husband gets off work.
